Butterfly Conservation Europe together with leading NGOs from Europe has sent an open letter to the European Commission, the Presidency of the Council of the European Union, and the European Parliament’s rapporteur on the Biodiversity Strategy for 2030, calling for the full implementation of nature protection commitments in the Biodiversity Strategy


With this letter, we want to express our support for the protected area targets for 2030 in the EU Biodiversity Strategy and draft some recommendations on how the nature protection commitments in the Biodiversity Strategy should be implemented.

"We need to better protect and restore nature at scale and allocate sufficient funding. We also need to address the underlying drivers of biodiversity loss, by better integrating biodiversity goals in other policies, like agriculture, marine and energy policies."
